It is actually kind of hard to decide which room is my favorite in our house.
I love so many.
My library is definitely pretty high on the list, but my total favorite is probably the sunroom.
There is just something about a room that is filled with sun and filled with antiques.
I love to get up early when the house is still quiet, have a cup of coffee and read my Bible.
It’s hard during the cold months, because it is really totally freezing in there.
I am dying for the spring to get here so I can spend more time in here!
I still need to get some pillows to add to the bed, but I just love what it looks like.
Can I keep it real here with you for a minute?
I am having a really hard time focusing on my goal in life being simply to please Jesus.
I tend to get so busy “serving” that I forget to just love him.
I get so busy with everything else in my life that I forget to just thank Him, praise Him, fear Him.
I need to think of it as I would as a mom.
I would rather have my kids snuggle with me, tell me what they love about me, and just be with me way more than I would want them to clean their room, or empty the dishwasher.
I want them to love being with me.
Sometimes, it is difficult to remember that Jesus wants me.
Not my service.
Not my work.
Sometimes, when I am reading my Bible, I am thinking about how I can blog about that.
Sometimes, when I am praying, I start thinking of new events I can plan, or wondering if we have enough snacks this week at The Porch.
It’s not what I want to be doing, but it’s what I’m finding myself doing more and more.
I need to spend more time getting to know who Jesus is, than I do on talking about who He is.
I started thinking this week about the name of God.
What His name symbolizes, what it offers me, what it is to me.
I need to esteem His name.
Am I doing that with my actions?
Am I showing Him that I care about Him and who He is?
Or am I working so hard for Him, that I am missing out on the friendship part?
I am writing this in the hope that I will be reminded of this more tomorrow.
And the next day. And the next day.
That I will be more focused on staying close to who He is.
I think I am finding myself getting farther and farther from Him the more and more I work for Him.
